Axe 419 Ladies Night Out

Two words! Worth it!! Moms, we all know we need some time away from the obligations and responsibilities of motherhood. We need to regroup, decompress, & remember that we’re more than nose & butt wipers. And yes, Karen, we know we need to put our oxygen masks on first! If I hear that analogy ONE MORE TIME!! Lol! But let’s be honest, going out is a LOT of work. First & foremost you need to snag a sitter, make dinner for kids, write bedtime instructions, sit everything out for the next day so you don’t hate yourself in the morning, & finally, make yourself look presentable…that might be a reach, put a bra on.  Going out can also cost a lot of money. We’re talking having to sacrifice your Grande Frappe Latte for a few weeks kinda money!  And, finally after all that work, all those days of pretending to enjoy your new coffee & ice cream concoction, losing a lifelong friendship because you stole her babysitter, & wearing an uncomfortable bra ALL night, you arrive home and go straight to the fridge to slurp up your sorrows in the butter pecan coffee carafe. Moms Night Out Remorse is a real thing, it’s like buyer’s remorse only worse because not only are you out the money, but also the time! That’s why I’m happy to announce that there is a Ladies Night Out destination that has been given the Mom on the go in Holy Toledo seal of approval, WORTH IT!!

My Experience….

We arrived & my inner voice came unhinged….what are you thinking?! You can’t throw an axe…you can’t even throw a ball properly! You’re gonna throw the axe in the wrong direction and kill someone, you’re gonna end up on the nightly news, “Local mom blogger kills 3 while attempting to throw axe”.  I managed to silence the dialogue in my mind long enough to sign the waiver & received instruction from their awesome Axe Thrower instructor, (Taylor, you rock!). Then it was time, time to throw some axes! I was about ready to pull a toddler and pee my pants. But I Women-ed Up  and threw & just like that I was transformed….I walked up as a toddler ready to pee myself and I came back as Braveheart “They may take my youth, my flat stomach, bladder control, nights, & money, but my children will not take my FREEDOM!” LOL!

I had an absolute blast & can’t wait to go back!

UPDATE… I’ve been back a few times, I’m officially obsessed w/ axe throwing! I might only hit the bullseye once every 10 throws but it’s still thrilling!

Have you been axe throwing? Are you ready to Women Up & reclaim your FREEDOM? Then give the girls a call and plan your Ladies Night Out at Axe 419 today!

 

Ladies Night Out: Ugly Dress Party

“They’re all going to laugh at you…they’re all going to laugh at you!” that scene from the 1976 American supernatural horror film, Carrie, suddenly popped into my mind. Maybe this is a bad idea!? What if I’m the only one who shows up? What if everyone shows, but, I’m the only one dressed like a weirdo? Maybe we shouldn’t meet in public? Those were the many thoughts racing through my head just moments before I hit the create button on the event, Ugly Dress Party!

INVITATION READ….

Moms Night Out: Ugly Dress Party

Are you prepared to laugh your asses off ladies? You know that ugly dress you keep shoved in the back of your closet and you don’t know why you didn’t donate it years ago? This is why! So you can take it out for one more night on the town.

How it Works:

Come dressed not to impress! Feel free to wear one of those “you can totally wear this again” bridesmaid dresses, old prom dress, etc. Don’t have an ugly dress? Make a dress ugly (add weird layers or accessories), hit up eBay (80s prom dresses) or thrift store, you can find them for cheap “shocker”, lol! Be sure to really bring it….hair accessories, shoes, etc. because there is a title on the line, Queen of the Ugly Dress Award! Yep, there will be prizes!!

Where: The Heights, 444 N Summit St. Toledo, OH 43604

When: January 18, 2018 @ 6:30pm

We will enjoy drinks, dinner, & fabulous conversation, so be sure to budget your money & time accordingly.

Call up that sitter, remove the mothballs from that dress, & be prepared to bring it!

Neale Donald Walsch said, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”, and boy was he right! Life hasn’t felt that exhilarating in a long time! The Ugly Dress party was a success. I will admit, it did feel a little strange walking into a public restaurant wearing what we were, but I think we added a bit of liveliness to the atmosphere and maybe even helped some tables with a conversation starter, lol!

uglydressparty1

All the ladies brought it, so much so that it was hard to decide on a Queen of the Ugly Dress award so we had some help from the wait staff. And while yours truly was awarded the “most confused outfit award”, we had another mom who really committed head to toe to the event; we are talking hair and all!

If you are looking for something fun, outside the box, end of your comfort zone type of experience than hosting a Ladies Night Out: Ugly Dress Party will not disappoint! Feel free to copy the invitation above and send it out to all your girlfriends. Do remember to change the date and if you feel uncomfortable making a spectacle of yourself in public you could always host the party at someone’s house…though, I know our group would rather make a spectacle of themselves in public than have to clean their house for a party, it all boils down to priorities, lol!

Ladies Night Out Recap & Giveaway

Last night marked the first ever Mom on the go in Holy Toledo Ladies Night Out!!! And it was an absolute blast!!!

ladiesnightout11_15 043

The evening started with a fun little game that got the ladies mingling.  Everyone had an index card pinned to their back with a name of a popular chick flick written on it. The object of the game was to mingle around the room and ask others yes or no questions in order to receive clues to help solve the mystery of the movie title pinned on their back. The titles included, The Notebook, Thelma & Louise, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, You’ve got Mail, etc. And the best part, the winner received a prize!

Then everyone grabbed refreshments and the lovely Tricia shared this new, awesome, trendy meets classic jewelry line KEEP Collective.

I was so impressed with both the style and quality of this personalized jewelry.  The concept of KEEP is so simple.  You pick a bracelet or necklace (she called them Keepers), and then you slide charms (she called them Keys) on that represent the “things” that matter to you — family, faith, friendship, hobbies, etc.  I am always on the lookout for awesome, quality, customizable gifts and KEEP Collective is PERFECT!!

And you won’t be able to resist designing something for yourself, too. She has some great ideas on a beautiful Mom Bracelet that is so different than what you’ve seen before.  (So, tell your husbands to call Trish!  Trust me; you will thank me for that tip!)  You can place an order anytime through this link:  https://www.keep-collective.com/soc/x5cz7

You could be the Mystery Hostess…….

Want to know the best part of all of this?  If you weren’t able to make it to Ladies Night Out you can still participate in the Mystery Hostess party. If you place an order using the link above, you (yes, you!!) could possibly win the Hostess Rewards for the entire party!  Tricia told us that she works hard to help her “hostesses” raise $1000 in retail sales, so that means at least $250 in Hostess Rewards (you read correctly, you could purchase one bracelet and if your name is pulled you could receive $250 in rewards….all you have to do to be entered in the hostess pool is buy one product).  Who couldn’t use an extra $250 to spend at Christmas time?!  If you want to see some design ideas, check out the pictures on her business Facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/TriciaDzierwaJourney/.  I am simply in love with KEEP Collective!!! 

 

After our love affair with KEEP Collective I had a little surprise for the ladies, a pop quiz on chocolate, Ireland, and even a few random questions. And I do believe I stumped them on a few, the winner, the person with the highest score, which was 8/12 won one of the beautiful painted wine glass samples that Uncork the Artist provided.  Which transitioned us into the final event that evening, we painted wine glasses!!

 

ladiesnightout11_15 039

Let me tell you, painting a wine glass is much harder than it looks! But it was a challenge the ladies happily accepted and nearly all accelerated their skill (I was not one of them, lol!) we have some very talented artist in the bunch, check these out…..

I left feeling so refreshed, rejuvenated, and so blessed to have had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing ladies!
